Publisher Description

Author of The Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant, one of the most acclaimed fantasy series of all time, master storyteller Stephen R. Donaldson retums with this exciting and long-awaited new series that takes us into a stunningly imagined future to tell a timeless story of adventure and the implacable conflict of good and evil within each of us.

Angus Thermopyle was an ore pirate and a murderer; even the most disreputable asteroid pilots of Delta Sector stayed locked out of his way.  Those who didn't ended up in the lockup--or dead.  But when Thermopyle arrived at Mallory's Bar & Sleep with a gorgeous woman by his side the regulars had to take notice.  Her name was Morn Hyland, and she had been a police officer--until she met up with Thermopyle.

But one person in Mallorys Bar wasn't intimidated.  Nick Succorso had his own reputation as a bold pirate and he had a sleek frigate fitted for deep space.  Everyone knew that Thermopyle and Succorso were on a collision course.  What nobody expected was how quickly it would be over--or how devastating victory would be.  It was common enough example of rivalry and revenge--or so everyone thought.  The REAL story was something entirely different.

In The Real Story, Stephen R. Donaldson takes us to a remarkably detailed world of faster-than-light travel, politics, betrayal, and a shadowy presence just outside our view to tell the fiercest, most profound story he has ever written.

Best intro to a saga

Stephen Donaldson stands alone as the best sci-fi writer.
I live in Battle Creek, MI, and you cannot imagine the shock, surprise, delight I experienced when I learned it was his sister who was my baby doctor!!
Before I knew who she was, I told her that I would be naming my child, if a son, Geraden, (the protagonist from "The Mirror of Her Dreams"), because it was my favorite book of all time. Or Morn, (the protagonist from "The Real Story" if a girl). My child is named Geraden, and he is 19 today!!
Stephen Donaldson owns my heart. His books are provoking and beyond the average person's intelligence. Not that I am a genius, but my IQ is high enough to delve into his writings and become one with his characters.
God, I should change my name to Morn,
Read his books, on par with Tolkien, Asimov, and Varley.
If you are a sci-fi geek, and have not found his writings, salvation comes today. Buy the whole "Gap" series. Star Wars is beyond pale compared to this series.
